Caged Animals today release the stunning 5 track “This Summer” EP. The title track of the EP, “This Summer I’ll Make It Up To You,” is a romantic vision of Summer imagined but never lived. Mr CagedAnimals, Vincent Cacchione, trades in hopeful couplets, promising to take the song’s subject to an idealized West Coast “where the sun is always shining,” a terminally East Coast perspective on the California Dream. In its final verse, the narrator of Cacchione’s fraudulent summer begins to see through his own lie, realizing this ideal impossible and resigning himself and his lover to a trip “to the Jersey shore, if nothing better works out.”
To support the release, Caged Animals will be playing a number of shows in New York this summer, dates below.
